Former national security adviser Michael Flynn is moving to withdraw from his plea deal “because of the government’s bad faith, vindictiveness and breach of the plea agreement.”
General Flynn had previously pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators in December 2017 regarding discussions he had with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak during the presidential transition before Trump assumed the Oval Office.
The railroading of Gen. Flynn occurred during the time when the deep state was scrambling to concoct a trail indicating Russian collusion. This led to FBI spook Robert Mueller’s embarrassing special counsel investigation that ultimately failed at ousting President Trump.
Gen. Flynn’s lawyers claim in a court filing that prosecutors attempted to coerce their client into providing “false” testimony. They claim prosecutors wanted Flynn to say that he “knew and intended” to sign erroneous filings regarding his lobbying work in Turkey, and therefore break his plea agreement by not telling the truth.
If the claims of Gen. Flynn’s legal team are correct, this is the latest instance of chicanery by a deep state apparatus desperate to crucify individuals close to President Trump.
“The prosecution has shown abject bad faith in pure retaliation against Mr. Flynn since he retained new counsel,” Flynn’s defense team wrote in the filing. “This can only be because with new, unconflicted counsel, Mr. Flynn refused to lie for the prosecution.”
Prosecutors recommended a harsher sentence to Gen. Flynn than they originally intended because of his perceived lack of cooperation in recent weeks, including replacing his legal team. They issued their recommendation that Gen. Flynn serve six months in prison last week.
“The government has reason to believe, through representations by the defendant’s counsel, that the defendant has retreated from his acceptance of responsibility in this case regarding his lies to the FBI,” prosecutors wrote.
Gen. Flynn’s legal team has also cited “extraordinary developments” that have come to light in the last 30 days, and they allege that these explosive revelations affect the case substantially. Gen. Flynn’s lawyers argue that they need more time to cover these developments.
Gen. Flynn’s railroading has been one of the most shameful aspects of the deep state’s witch hunt against President Trump. Former FBI agent Peter Strzok, the disgraced philanderer, interviewed Gen. Flynn in early 2017 to allegedly set him up with dubious charges in a perjury trap.
Big League Politics has reported on the developments in the Flynn case for years:
As President Donald Trump calls for an end to the Robert Mueller investigation based on former Mueller team member Peter Strzok’s blatant unlawful attempts to personally target Trump, the case against General Michael Flynn is also becoming more precarious due to Strzok’s involvement.
In fact, Strzok personally set up General Flynn, the original Trump White House national security adviser.
On January 24, 2017, Peter Strzok interviewed General Michael Flynn inside the White House alongside another agent. Flynn’s lawyer was not present. Flynn apparently did not tell the White House about his meeting. Guess who did? Sally Yates, the anti-Trump deputy attorney general whose underling told the FBI to shut down the Clinton Foundation case. Yates informed the White House on January 26 that Flynn met with the FBI.
That was the beginning of the end for the original Trump White House.
Strzok was close personal friends with the foreign intelligence judge Rudolph Contreras who accepted General Flynn’s guilty plea. Contreras recused himself after he already accepted Flynn’s guilty plea.
Strzok and Page detailed their plan to meet with Contreras in a July 25, 2016 series of texts:
PAGE: “Rudy is on the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court]! Did you know that? Just appointed two months ago.”
STRZOK: “I did. I need to get together with him.”
PAGE: “said he’d gotten on a month or two ago at a graduation party we were both at.”
Mueller reportedly coerced Flynn into pleading guilty by threatening the general’s son Mike Flynn Jr., whom Hillary Clinton clearly referred to in a tweet expressing anger at Flynn Jr. for tweeting about the Comet Pizza-Gate story.
Evidence now clearly shows that General Michael Flynn was targeted for prosecution under a charge of lying to federal investigators because Robert Mueller was trying to flip him into participating in the “Russia” probe against President Donald Trump.
Gen. Flynn may have his day in court yet to prove his innocence. But as long-time Trump confidant Roger Stone found out, Washington D.C. swamp courts are not exactly known for their fairness and impartiality. It will continue to be an uphill battle for Gen. Flynn to clear his name.
Congressman Claims Deep State May Have Planted Fake News about Russians in Afghanistan
This is likely the newest Russian hoax.
Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) believes that certain deep state actors may have planted fake news about the Russians paying Taliban personnel to kill U.S. soldiers.
The story was reported by the New York Times last week, and President Donald Trump has been thrown through the ringer because he supposedly did nothing about it.
The White House has disputed the facts of the story, and Banks told Breitbart News Tonight on SiriusXM that he thinks this may be the next phase of the Russia scam that has been perpetrated since before Trump was sworn into office.
Banks explained on the show that “initial tactical reports often require additional collection and validation,” and he is angered that the work by the Times could prevent the truth from ever being known.
“Gina Haspel, the CIA director, released a statement, released her first-ever statement, she’s never done this before, but she released a statement saying that the intelligence was not convincing enough that it rose to the point that they took it seriously that should brief the president about the alleged bounties on American troops or American civilians serving in Afghanistan,” Banks said.
“To your point, it’s hit pieces like this that make it much harder for the president to do his job, to get out, to bring our troops home and end the longest war in American history, but also to identify the real threats of the day … the intelligence community spent the last four days focused on refuting this hit piece when they should be focused on the greatest existential threat we face in America today which is combatting the China threat,” he added.
“Democrats want to wear out this Russian-Trump collusion hoax because they want to make hay out of that to divert attention away from the biggest weakness of all from Joe Biden and Hunter Biden, the Hunter Biden corruption issue is that Obama record fo appeasing and turning a blind eye to the nefarious actions of China,” Banks explained. “They don’t want to talk about that; that’s why they want to bring out this tired old Russian narrative that the American people have long moved on from.”
The Pentagon has come out and said that there is not enough evidence for the claim to be corroborated.
“The Department of Defense continues to evaluate intelligence that Russian GRU operatives were engaged in malign activity against United States and coalition forces in Afghanistan. To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports. Regardless, we always take the safety and security of our forces in Afghanistan – and around the world – most seriously and therefore continuously adopt measures to prevent harm from potential threats,” Pentagon Spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement given to American Military News on Monday night.
Yet again, it seems the fake news is putting America last by publishing dubious reports that hurt national security just to attack President Trump.
